Happy Birthday to me! 

Standard

Seeing as today is my birthday and I’m going to be in Rock, Cornwall on a short break, I thought I would post this Seaside card to celebrate my birthday spent by the beautiful Camel Estuary! I have been buying various metal craft dies from China, either on EBay or Ali Express.  Great dies at unbelievable prices! Anyway, I couldnt wait to use my latest set, and here is the end result.  Used upside down cloud dies for the waves, and a hill die for the land. Used Brusho Inks as my sky background, and Distress Oxide Inks on all the other elements! And to finish, a Tattered Lace Washing Line Happy Birthday die.


Butterfly

Standard

The first card has an embossed background called Dot Matrix, with a butterfly inked with Brusho Inks which I pressed my stamp into it.  It came up beautifully!   Made the word die cuts with the same ink colours.  Then I made the second card the same way, then layered it, and Im quite pleased with the result.

Angel

Standard

Its amazing how much time it takes just to find the matching papers for a card before you can begin! Finally I managed it and here is the result.  Im really pleased with the design.  I cut the mannequin from XCut Haberdashery dies, and the wings are stamped and cut.

Gelli Print

Standard

This is a Gelli print background with a marbled effect.  Gold embossing powder on edges, and a stamped butterfly from StampinUp with decorative swirls. A mannequin shape for the butterflies body.  Alphabet tiles spell out Flutter By….
